So, I watched my video #15 from the Ignite Talks from the 2012 Digital Media and Learning Conference. The video that I watched was on a talk from Heather Braum. I did a little research on her to find out who she is, her interests and what she does for a living and came across her web page. She is a technology librarian at the Northeast Kansas Library System and states that she received her MLS at Emporia State University and says that she is a third generation librarian. The video is below and I will now touch on a few points that I found interesting for different reasons. I am going to provide the exact time points (hopefully) of the exacts moments that I would like you all to listen to.[youtube]http://youtu.be/Wbr9jh28npU[/youtube]
There are a few quotes that I found interesting; the first quote being “Libraries are much much more than books and are now the communities hubs”. The second quote is “Through the library sutter for lifelong learning, library patrons experience computer, ebay, art, crafting, gardening and baking classes as well as, knitting, scrabble, cooking and book clubs”. The last quote is “Throughout our lives we seek knowledge and information. Throughout our lives we learn. Throughout our lives we turn to our libraries to continue learning. How is your local library doing this”?
